Phytolec to treat and prevent endothelial dysfunction

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is weakening of the inner lining of blood vessels, resulting in inflammation, high cholesterol, high oxidative stress, and vascular stiffness.

This is the primary root cause of atherosclerosis, which is the main cause of stroke and heart attack.

The herb Phyllanthus emblica as an extract in Phytolec was clinically proven in a human study improves ED in diabetic patients without the side effects of statins.

Other causes of ED are chronic stress (managed by adaptogenic herbs such as eleuthero), high glucose, low Vitamin D status, and high c-reactive protein marker (check with a blood test).

Since heart disease is the number killer, it is highly suggested to improve ED with this herb extract, coupled with a healthy lifestyle.
